Man wanted for questioning in homicide arraigned

By Joe Gorman


A man wanted for questioning in a March homicide was arraigned Monday in municipal court.

Jermaill Holloway, 24, is in the Mahoning County jail on $50,000 bond after his arraignment on a charge of discharging a firearm into a habitation.

Holloway is scheduled for a preliminary hearing next week.

He was arrested about 10:45 a.m. Friday by U.S. Marshals at a home on South Avenue in Boardman.

Holloway has been sought for questioning since the March 20 death of Marquise Shelton, 23. Shelton was shot inside an Idora Avenue home.

Police said Shelton was shot after he and Holloway argued over the results of a video game. Holloway had been on the run since Shelton’s death, police said.

In court Monday, Assistant City Prosecutor Jeffrey Moliterno said that Holloway fired several shots at the home after he was asked to leave. He did not say, however, if any of those shots hit anyone.

A woman was wounded in the shoulder during the same shooting, reports said.

Police at the time labeled Holloway a suspect in Shelton’s death, but he has not been charged with the murder. Municipal court records show the charge against him for discharging a firearm into a habitation was filed March 21 in municipal court.

Court records show Holloway has faced only traffic charges before the shooting.
